Dan Orlovsky Prepares for an All-Day Football Marathon on ESPN

Dan Orlovsky’s first season as an ESPN football analyst has been busy. The former UConn and Detroit Lions quarterback has called games, appeared on college football and NFL studio shows and made regular appearances on Get Up!, SportsCenter, ESPN Radio programs and more. This Saturday, Dec. 15, will be more of the same when Orlovsky is in studio in Bristol, Conn., for a marathon day of football.

On the first day of the college football bowl season, Orlovsky will appear on multiple editions of SportsCenter and handle “wraps” – pre-game, halftime and postgame analysis – for five bowl games and an FCS Championship game. He will also preview and provide postgame analysis of the two NFL games on Saturday.

Orlovsky’s Saturday starts with the 8 a.m. ET edition of SportsCenter. Sixteen-and-a-half hours later, he will finish up on the 12:30 a.m. SportsCenter after all the day’s games have concluded.

“In just his first season with ESPN, Dan has already shown how versatile he can be, providing thought-provoking analysis on both college football and the NFL across a number of platforms and shows,” said NFL coordinating producer Mike Cambareri. “Saturday will be a testament to that versatility with a full day – and night – of football on his platter, and he’s more than up to the task.”
